LWC Men's Basketball wins two at Lou Cunningham Classic

Next: Lindsey Wilson hosts Simmons (KY), at 8pmCT, Monday, November 20, 2017, at Biggers Sports Center, 360 Spickard Drive, Columbia, KY.
By Chris Wells LWC Sports Information Director
CAMPBELLSVILLE, KY - (Sun 19 Nov 2017) - Four Blue Raiders scored in double figures to help Lindsey Wilson men's basketball beat Oakwood 84-74 on Saturday night at the Powell Athletic Center.
The game closed the two-day Lou Cunningham Classic hosted by Campbellsville (KY). Lindsey Wilson posted a 2-0 record during the event -- beating Indiana Southeast 77-66 on Friday night.
Bryan Wallace scored a team-high 21 points while Jordan Hamlette added 19 in tonigh's win. Can Oztamur and Charles Sutton chipped in 14 and 10 points respectively to help the No. 21-ranked Blue Raiders improve to 7-0 on the season.
Lindsey Wilson led by as many as 16 points early in the second half, but needed a strong finish after Oakwood trimmed the lead to one point (75-74) with just over two minutes left in the game.
The Blue Raiders looked to be in control heading down the stretch -- up 75-63 with 4:44 remaining in regulation. Oakwood scored 11 straight points over the next 2-1/2 minutes to erase the Lindsey Wilson advantage. Three 3-pointers and a layup fueled the Oakwood comeback.
But Lindsey Wilson responded with a spurt of its own over the final two minutes.
The Blue Raiders scored nine consecutive points over a one-minute span to regain control of the game. And after surrendering the 11-point Oakwood run, the Lindsey Wilson defense did not yield another point, holding Oakwood scoreless over the final 2:09.
Lindsey Wilson closed the game making 45.1 percent (23-of-51) from the field. The Blue Raiders converted a season-best 83.8 percent (31-of-37) from the free throw line. Oakwood was held to 36.4 percent (24-of-66) from the floor.
